The small island of Menorca enjoys a big reputation thanks to its renowned beaches and crystal-clear waters. Home to fine dining, rich architecture and important historical sites, this island offers much more beyond its wealth of beaches. A luxury holiday in Menorca gives you the chance to try traditional Menorcan horse training, sailing, scuba diving and a whole lot more.
With a Mediterranean climate and little rainfall, Menorca enjoys weather ideal for long days at the beach. In the summer, temperatures can soar to around 30 degrees Celsius, especially in the months of July and August, and this season is a popular time for luxury travellers to visit the island's beaches.
In spring, cooler temperatures are perfect for activity getaways and long walks amongst the blossoming almond trees. During autumn, temperatures sit in the low 20s, whilst winters are mild with typical highs of 15 degrees Celsius.
Start your day in Menorca with a buffet breakfast and move on to the evening with Mediterranean specialities, or favoured international dishes. Enjoy pizzas cooked in wood-fired ovens, and traditional Menorcan foods, like fish meatballs.
With lots of fresh seafood, prime meats and local produce, like cured sausages and the highly prized Mahon cheese, fine dining in Menorca is a gastronomic delight. Don't forget to sample some local Menorcan wines, as you'll find some fantastic reds here, with deep cherry flavours, and typically made from merlot and cabernet sauvignon grapes.
As with any holiday, it's a good idea to carry some identification with you and to keep a photocopy of your passport on your person. British passport holders don't need a visa to enter Spain. Visit GOV.UK for more advice on passports, visas and travel.
